Editorial GoboLinux is a distribution which sports a different file system structure than 'ordinary' Linux distributions. In order to remain compatible with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, symbolic links are used to map the GoboLinux tree to standard UNIX directories. A post in the GoboLinux forums suggested that it might be better to turn the concept around: retain the FHS, and then use symbolic links to map the GoboLinux tree on top of it. This sparked some interesting discussion. Read on for more details.

If your problem is finding things, you probably don't know how to fix any significant problems

And maybe you'd like to learn. A system that is simpler and more intuitive would be a big help.

"intuitive" is very much in the eye of the beholder...
